His weekly address

President Trump tweeted a video of his weekly address, in which he recapped his inaugural trip abroad.

In his remarks, Trump recounted the highlights of his stops in Saudi Arabia, Jerusalem, Bethlehem and Vatican City, as well as his participation in a NATO summit in Brussels and a Group of 7 meeting in Sicily.

"Everywhere we went, my goal was to advance American interests, to build a coalition of nations to drive out the terrorists and to unlock a future of peace, prosperity and hope for all Americans – and people – around the world," he said.

Trump did not mention his decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris climate change accord, which came after world leaders lobbied him heavily to stay in the deal.
